Common Causes of Truck Accidents by Commercial Truck Drivers

Several studies have shown that fatigued driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving. To address this problem, the federal government enacted the Hours-of-Service Regulation (HOS), limiting the time commercial drivers can operate their vehicles. They are limited to an 11-hour maximum drive time and required to have eight hours of sleep with a two-hour break.

  1. Inadequate training in driving technique, safety concerns, and defensive driving and
